Britney Spears's longtime companion/manager Sam Lufti has given up trying to work through the troubled star's problems with her parents Jamie and Lynne Spears - because he has "no more respect for the family.
" Spears' estranged parents and Lutfi were reported to have joined forces to have the singer admitted to Los Angeles' UCLA Medical Center on Thursday morning, where she was placed on 72-hour psychiatric hold. But Lutfi is now claiming Britney's parents are more concerned with money and their image than their daughter's well-being, branding them "incapable of telling the truth and incapable of sympathizing." In an exclusive interview with E! News - which will air in the U.S. on Friday night - he insists he has "a moral obligation" to protect the 26-year-old like he would with any of his three sisters. He also maintains he has never been paid by Spears and "never accepted money from the media" for tip offs about the star's whereabouts. And Lutfi explains his constant presence beside the singer is due to her desperate requests: "You meet her and she cries, and she begs (you) not to turn on her."
